with the Twentieth District Sena
Svtcial to the Scranton Tribune.
Moscow, Pa., Sept. 24.
ITH a view of ascertaining tbe
probable result of tomorrow's
eonveotion, one ot The Tri
bune reporters interviewed
Hon. John S. La Tonobe, chairman of
tbe Twentieth Senatorial committee, at
his home in tbis place today. Mr. La
Tonche expressed his views freely upon
tne subject, as a portion of ths Inter
view will show:
"What do yon expect the Twentieth
senatorial sonvention to do tomorrow,"
was asked of 'Chairman LaTonche.
Will Lieutenant Governor Watres bo
"In my judgment, he will not." Mr.
LaTonche replied, ' "and for the reason
that it is generally understood that his
business interests demand his attention
at present. Governor Watres bss now
been in Harrlsbnrg for twelve years
during which time be has necessarily
been enable to give his privste busi
ness interests the attention that tbey
demand. I know be feels deeply grate
ful for the kindly interest wbish the
Repnblicsns of tbis district take in
bim as evidenced in their unanimous
wish to confer a third nomination upon
him, but from conversations I have had
with the governor I am inclined to be
lieve tbat, in justice to bim, somsotuor
uepnoiican shonid be chosen this year.
"Whom do you think, then, will be
"The only name I have heard men

clining, which I know he will do, is
james u. vaugnan, Lsq. ll tbere are

"Could Mr. Vaughan be elected?"
. "Most assuredly. See here, when
Colonel Watres was first nomlnatsd
for state senator his district was re
garded as surly Demooratio by at
least 3,200 plurality. The solonel
turned tbis exoess into a 1 200 Ropubll
can ' plurality.' Ths Second time
he ran ha. . not only had
to face a strong Dsmocratic can
didate but also a strong third party
candidate in tbe person of Mr. Brad
bury wboi polled 995 votes. Still, Sen
atar Watres was rt-leeted by a plur
ality equal to his first one. Tnis popu
larity win be at tne disposil of Mr.
Vaughan of whom the Lieutenant Gov
ernor is a warm personal and political
friend. There is no reason why, with
tbe loval support of tbe party which
Mr. Vaughan thoroughly deservss. he
coald not defeat Senator McDonald

GOVERNOR WATRES' FUTURE.
"Bnt wbat will Lieutenant Gover
nor Watres do?"
"Take his coat off for the whole Re

torial and connty. and work like n
beaver for its election, and after tbat
devote his time to private interests.
You know bow lie can work. Tbat
was shown vsrv olearlv in bis sens
torisl career. There was no busier
man in Harrisbnrg, and tbe district
can never have a more active or com
"I know that, Mr. La Touobe; but
wbat ot bis future?
"Now, there you have me. I am not
a prophet, but if there is anything in
the sxpresslons of party sentiment tbat
I boar, not only in our own county, bnt
elsewere in tbe state, Governor Watres
will by no means retire from active
politics. In my opinion bis election in
1890 as lieutenant governor was one of
tbe highest tributes that could be paid
to bim by the state, he having received
23,000 Republican plurality at the
same time that Governor Patlison re-
seived 17,000 Democratic plurality
Governor Watres stands high with bis
party, and deserves great credit for the
magnificent campaign be eonduoted as
state chairman in 1891. lie has al
wave successfully mt every emergency
and is a man of the poople. He would
make a magnificent candidate to sue
ceed Don Cameron In 1897. There are
many who think tbat Senator Cameron
will not be a candidate lor re-election,
"The people in looking for a man who
stands sqnarely with tbe party will, in
my judgment, find tbat man in Gov
ernor Watres. i shonid like to see him
a candidate for tbis position, and I be
lieve the Republicans of Pennsylvania
can do no batter. Bnt, us I said, I am
no prophet. It is a Ions time now nn
"Then you think tomorrow's nominee
will be Jamea V. VannbauT
"As I said before, I bave heard ot no
.other candidate, and with tbe llsuton
ant governor ont of the field I know of
no better one. Do you?" And the
chairman winked significantly.
